Question about GE 7-4837 Clock Radio

2 Answers

This is the most stupid clock radio ever.

I no longer have the manual and the buttons are not intuitive at all. I don't know how to turn off the 'nap', turn off the 'alarm', etc.

Turning off the Nap = just hold nap for like 3-5 seconds
Turning off the alarm = Hit cancel and then the mode flashes for 3 seconds.. touch mode and then you'll see there is 'no mode' selected showing the alarm is now off. Hit mode to turn it back for the next normal alarm scheduled time.

    I just picked up one of these decade-old clock radios in a thrift shop for a couple of bucks. Couldn't figure these things out either. What an incredibly unintuitive design by GE. Thank you pcguy99!

RP3721A How to turn off NAP button

I've seen some comments that you can't turn NAP off once it's set.

You can turn off NAP by holding down the NAP button for a few seconds again once the clock has exited NAP set mode and is showing the time. When you first hit the button, it'll go back into NAP set mode (probably showing 0:20) but after a few seconds, you'll go back to the time with NAP off.

Trick is, the button's a little quirky, and you have to hold down just the edge closest to the back of the clock. The middle of the button or any other edge just throws you back into NAP time adjust but never turns it off. I have no idea why--must be a design or manufacturing flaw of some kind.

I can't get the alarm to go off as the radio.

To turn off, hold down the mode button until the alarm/radio symbols disappear. To turn off nap, hold down nap button. Is the alarm volume controlled by the radio volume?

For the snooze, hold down the snooze button (should display the length of time for snoozing) and hit the time/tune buttons up or down to increase or decrease the snooze time.

For the nap time, press nap and the nap indicator should start blinking. Again, hit the time/tune buttons up or down to increase or decrease the name time in 10 minute increments up to 2 hours.

Press the Cancel button. While the wake mode LED is blinking (either alarm or radio) press the Wake Mode button. The wake mode LED should now be off. To turn off the Nap function before the alarm sounds, press and hold the Nap button for 3-5 seconds. The Nap LED should stop blinking and be off.

I believe you can turn Nap off by holding the Nap button for several seconds.

JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap off.

Snooze alarm

Like everyone else here I have accidentally hit the NAP button and couldn't turn it off. This morning at 2am I accidentally hit it with my husband in bed. I decided one and for all to guide this out. By flashlight and my cell phone i Googled a solution. I came across many, none of which worked. I resorted to trying methods that were posted for other models of this brand of clocks. The solution that I found that worked was to hold down the back part of the NAP button until the seat the time displayed and the nap light off. By back part of the button I mean hold down the tiny section closest to the rear of the clock. I got this solution from instructions for model RP3721A clock. It took me 17 minutes.That's just 3 minutes before the alarm would have gone off.
